bob hope. the troops love me. we have a big big hour and the iq will go way up. alright, in 15 minutes we're going to do the young turks. i think the number one thing that viewers like about the young turks is that we're honest. they know that i'm not bs'ing them with some hidden agenda, actually supporting one party or the other. when the democrats are wrong, they know that i'm going to be the first one to call them out. they can question whether i'm right, but i think that the audience gets that this guy, to the best of his ability, is trying to look out for us. >> announcer: heard around the >> announcer: this is the "full court press." the "bill press show" live on your radio and on current tv. >> bill: we're talking about the war on working families now. the latest battle front is the state of michigan. by the way didn't mention there in the first segment that the koch brothers, of course, are right in the middle of all of this. the "the obama hate machine" having failed to dislodge obama now failing again to destroy labor unions. they were

turned around. we're probably no different place than we were yesterday. >> if you listen to bob corker, republicans know they have to give on taxes. so i guess, jackie, the key question is, what are the real options here? i mean, i suppose the house could pass the senate bill that extends tax cuts for 98% of americans, leave everything else until january. and use the debt ceiling as leverage. they could try to get some kind of deal on entitlement reform. maybe raising the age for medicare from 65 to 67. what's looking likely or is the problem that there is nothing that looks particularly likely right now, jackie? >> well, some of the things you just listed are going to be part of a framework. i think we're starting to see that. you know, the heavy lifting is going to have to happen this week. just in terms of time. if you don't get something by the 14th or 15th they're not going to have time by the rules to get this through before christmas. otherwise we're getting into christmas, getting into the holidays. it's going to get complicated getting members in and out of town and all that.

has the best policy. >> let's switch gears. fiscal cliff, republican senator bob corker, the latest republican to say, all right. go ahead and raise taxes on the top 2%. here's what he said. >> a lot of people are putting forth a theory, and i actually think it has merit, where you go ahead and give the president the 2% increase that he's talking about, the rate increase on the top 2%, and all of a sudden, the shift goes back to entitlements. >> will, why not give him the 2% and then get what you want on the other issues that are on the table? >> well, senator corker's strategy, his analysis here has a little bit of merit. look, if we give in on the top 2%, if we just say, okay, you get your tax increases on people over $250,000. now what, democrats? now? all that entitlement you've been talking about that you're willing to look at reforming, let's look at it now. nothing's in the way of that. there's a little bit of merit to that. but it also requires you to believe that president obama and the democrats have a real interest in fulfilling that obligation, a real interest in examini
